PhD Student, Applied Photochemistry and Circular Economy Research Team
Alexander Doolin is currently a PhD student within Professor Matthew Davies’ research group with a research focus on improving the stability and sustainability of perovskite photovoltaics.
To date, Alexander’s research has revolved around the sustainable substitution of hazardous solvents used in the manufacture of perovskite solar cells (PSCs) through the application of green chemistry principles. Alexander’s main aim is to elucidate the role of processing solvents as applied to a variety of perovskite compositions using photochemical characterisation techniques (primarily fluorescence spectroscopy).
Prior to undertaking a PhD, Alexander graduated with an MEng in Chemical Engineering from Swansea University.
